Fort Fetterman

Fort Fetterman is located north of Douglas, Wyo. From Interstate 25, take Exit 140 to state Highway 93 and travel northwest about eight miles; the fort is on a hill on the right, shortly before the highway crosses the North Platte River.

The site is open daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and the visitor center and ordnance building are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The grounds are open during daylight hours. Visitors may walk among the foundations of the old fort, follow the interpretive trail to a gazebo overlooking the river and the site of Gen. Crook’s camp. The site is handicapped accessible. Facilities also include picnic and camping areas. Fetterman Days, an annual celebration, is held in early summer. The site is closed during the winter.
